Frontrow's Sam Verzosa is among judges of this year's Miss Universe Philippines' preliminary competition.
Just recently, he shared via social media behind-the-scene photos of the contest.
Among his posts are photos of him with his co-jurors - Miss Universe Philippines National Director Shamcey Supsup-Lee and Miss Universe Philippines creative director Jonas Gaffud.
"Judging for the Prelims of Miss Universe Philippines w/ @jonasempire.ph and Ms Shamcey Supsup. Tonight at 7pm is the live stream event for the preliminary competition on KTX.PH. Remember it’s live stream so please be on time for the season pass holders. Swipe left for some preview. #MissUniversePhilippines Presented by #Frontrow," his caption read.
However, netizens noticed the candid photo of Sam holding a paper seemingly filled with names of the delegates.
"Hello! The names of the contestants in the scoresheet is kinda visible. Isn’t the judging should be kept confidential? Medyo na-iidentify kasi sino ang may mga check ang pangalan," one commented.
Another added: "Bakit walng check si Manila sa swimsuit eh nanlamon nga sya? Rawrr."
Someone also interjected: "Paranaque over Manila? We knew who did well in the swimsuit category and if Manila wasn't the best at least she was placed in Top 5."
Most online users expressed concern about the scoresheet being shared publicly.
"Kaloka ang check mark. Ganun lang? Walang actual scoring. Kaloka," a netizen wrote.
"Omg. The scoresheet should not be publicized."
A concerned pageant aficionado then asked if there's proper scoring.
"HAHAHAHAHHAHA CHECK CHECK LANG, ANO TO? ATTENDANCE? SAY PRESENT GANON??? HAHAHAHAHHA OMG I LIVE MUPH SM."
